Kyle Cease has his raw humor and now his raw food

Kyle Cease is currently one of the most in-demand young comics. Last year he performed over 200 shows nation wide and also hit a career goal by having his own one-hour comedy special, "Kyle Cease: Weirder. Blacker. Dimpler", on Comedy Central.

He's funny as hell, but when it comes to his diet it's all serious business.

From a recent Seattle Times interview:

Q: Most comics eat like frat boys, and you live on raw food?

A: I've never felt better than when I eat raw food. Why not eat it since it boosts your confidence and looks? I lost 50 pounds since eating raw food, and I have so much more energy.

Q: Most comics seem to be tempted by something since there are so many hours in a day. What's your temptation?

A: I think I have pretty good self-control. But it's true about comics having many hours in a day. After we write a solid hour of material, we perform that hour each night. There are many hours left in the day, so comics tend to get comfortable. They start drinking, and it goes from there. You can see how comics lose control of their lives.

Q: How do you eat right when you're in a state like Kansas?

A: I just did shows in Kansas. I eat at Applebee's and order the spinach salad with vinaigrette.

Kyle, next time you come to NYC dinner is on the entourage at Pure Food and Wine. No more messing with Applebees!

Here's a clip of Kyle performing his famous Nintendo bit:
